Newt Starters.

Congratulations to Neil who joined our High Wycombe
branch on Wednesday last week. Neil was found manning Aisle B amongst our vast stock of #malleableironfittings.

Thanks to Dominic Warrington for contacting the Arc Trust to ensure Neil was safety returned to his natural habitat. Neil can now be found in a nearby pond dreaming of his malleable iron adventure.

If Shawston did red wine….

Today is our 19th birthday. Whilst thinking about the last 19 years we are reminded of the one thing that has kept the business and its people going – tenacity. Determination is part of the Shawston soul.

We are extremely proud and very lucky to have a business full of like minded co-owners who will always put the company and our customers first. Especially in the current climate.

Happy birthday to us all – cheers!

At #Shawston we talk a lot about discretionary effort or DE as it’s known in the branches. Moving your days holiday to another day to complete a customer order so it arrives on time is just one recent example from our Hyde branch.

During the ongoing pandemic we have seen a huge step up in our teams DE and this in turn has helped #Shawston to stay open, busy and Covid secure. We are very proud to have a culture and ethos that really does emphasise our family spirit and the #Shawston soul.

As a thank you to all our co-owners each person received a
#Shawston gift straight from the heart. More news on what’s in the box is coming soon, but the phoenix is certainly rising within the #Shawston group.
